The Essence of Humanism: Free Thought versus Religious Belief
The book is in two parts. Part One deals with the principles and practices of humanism and free thought. Part Two deals with religious beliefs (both theistic and non-theistic) and the reasons why many people hold them. There is also a brief personal introductory Prologue and an Epilogue which addresses some of the more controversial issues in the book. There are some appendices (such as information about humanist and free thought publications and organizations), a comprehensive bibliography, and a detailed index.
